Gravity is directly proportional to the mass (weight) of an object. The moon does have less pull of gravity than the Earth, but it has lots more pull of gravity than, say, the 2 moons of Mars.

Why is there less gravity on the moon?

The moon has less mass than Earth. Gravity is proportional to mass, so there is less gravity on the moon.


Why the gravity of moon is less than earth?

Gravity is caused by mass. The MASS of the Moon is far less than the mass of the Earth, which is why the gravity of the Moon is less.


Why is there no gravity on the moon?

There is gravity on the moon, just less of it, because the moon has less mass than the earth.


Does the moon or Mars have less gravity?

The moon has less mass than does Mars and therefore has less gravity at its surface.


Why is the moon gravity less then earth's gravity?

Because the moon has less mass than earth.


Why is gravity different on the moon than on the moon?

Gravity depends on mass. More mass in Earth means more gravity on Earth; less mass in the Moon equals less gravity on the Moon.


Why no gravity on moon?

There Is gravity on the Moon. It's less than the gravity on the Earth, because the Moon is smaller than the Earth, but, there is gravity on the Moon.


Why is there less or no gravity on the moon then there is on earth?

There is gravity on the moon. It is about on sixth what it is on Earth. This is because the moon has less mass than Earth does.


Why is your weight different on the moon?

Weight is mass times gravity, and there is less gravity on the moon, therefore you weigh less on the moon.


Why the moon has no gravity?

The moon does have gravity. It's about one-sixth of the gravity we have on earth. You would weigh less if you were on the moon.


Why is the moon gravity less than earth?

Gravity depends on the mass of an object. Because the moon has less mass than the Earth, it has less gravity too.


Why does the moon have not much gravity?

Gravity decreases as size of the object decreases. Since the moon is not as large as say, the Earth, there is less gravity since the moon has less force.


How did the vehicle on moon roll when there was no gravity?

there is gravity on the moon you prick its just less


Why is gravity on earth and not the moon?

There is gravity on the moon. The moon's gravity is much weaker than Earth's because the moon has less mass.


How come the gravity on the moon is less than the gravity on Earth?

Because gravity is proportional to the mass of an object. Therefore, since the mass of Earth is larger than the Moon's, the gravity of the Moon is less. because the moon gets its gravity from the earth and as you know there is no gravity in space to the polarty of the moons gravity will natrualy be less


Why is the less gravity on the moon?

Because the strength of the gravity is dependent on the mass of the planet, and the moon has less mass than the earth.


Why does the moon have more gravity than the earth?

It doesn't. The moon has less gravity than Earth because it has less mass.


Why moon has less gravity?

The Moon has much less mass than the Earth.


Moon gravity vs earths gravity?

Moon gravity is less because the atmosphere and mass and the earths gravity is greater than the moon if you weight yourself in the earth and then you weighted yourself in the moon you would weight less in the moon you could actually float in the moon because of its atmosphere and mass


Why is there less gravity on the moon than earth?

Gravity is the attraction between masses. And since the moon has less mass than earth, the gravity is weaker there. Over a distance gravity is weaker.


Why is weight less on the moon?

The moon has less mass than the Earth, so it has less gravity. This is why you're lighter on the moon.


Does the moon have less gravity than the earth?

Yes, the gravity of the moon is 1/6th that of the Earth
